Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

F09 indicates a heating fault.

Unplug the appliance.

Take the panel on the rear off to expose the heater thermostats.

One should have a small button on it.

Press the button firmly and hopefully you should hear a click. If you do then the thermostat has reset.

Refit the panel.

Try the machine again.

If it starts heating, check everything (filters etc) to ensure you have good airflow through the machine.

Check it out, see what you find and get back to me.
